Overview

Galway Golf Club is located in Blackrock, Salthill, County Galway, Ireland. This 18 hole parkland golf course lies east of the city of Galway with waterfront property on Blackrock Beach, Galway Bay.

Interestingly, the club approached the firm of Colt and Alison in the 1920s to lay out the new course. Of note, it was neither Colt nor Alison who travelled to Salthill but Alister MacKenzie who visited. He quickly established the routing and laid out the positions of the tees and greens.

Despite having waterfront property on Galway Bay, only the first four holes make use of the coastline before moving inland for the remaining 14. Both nines return to the clubhouse and a tunnel connects the first four fours with the remaining 14 on the other side of the road.
